Kona Ice Comforts Kansas After Tax Day: Invites Community to Unify in Collective Choice to “Chill Out”  

No Taxation Without Relaxation: Beloved Gourmet Shaved Ice Brand Encourages Kansas to Choose “Chill” on “Chill Out Day”

WHAT: To ease the pain of tax filing, Kona Ice is serving up a free frozen cup of tax day relief for tense taxpayers in all corners of the country while accepting donations for a special local charity.  

Kona Ice will be parked at the both 810 Zone locations in Leawood’s Town Center and downtown Lee’s Summit to hand out FREE cups of fluffy snow. The refreshing treat will ensure that there is no taxation without relaxation this tax season.
The event is open to the public and media cameras. Interviews will be available onsite.
WHY: April 15th is America’s least favorite day. Between sifting through the mail for the correct paperwork, filling out form after form with painstaking detail and paying a hefty sum of money to Uncle Sam, tax day can be a real drag.
National “Chill Out Day” is one of the many ways Kona Ice is helping Flavor Our World.
The newly launched Flavor Our World campaign is dedicated to enhancing our world through community partnerships, school fundraisers, sponsorships and philanthropic projects. These contributions are continuing to make the world a better, brighter place.
Building upon these giveback tactics and the $16 million Kona Ice has put back into communities nationwide, National Chill Out Day is one small, yet powerful, way the brand hopes to put a smile on people’s faces.
